Yes they crooks. Had a few issues with them over the years, getting stung full price despite booking specials on line. I used to drive into the city everyday and park. They were the only ones we had issues with. When you ring them up, they piss and moan like they are doing you a favour and they used to take ages to process refunds. We simply don't park in their carparks now. Secure Parking much better.

We have $10 a day all day parking in the City of Perth carparks, we have a few Wilsons, we use them only because they are convenient in the city, right next door to Myres.

Almost as expensive as parking at the hospital carparks

I had a run in with them earlier this year in the Central carpark. Used the app and it debited my apple pay, and my CC as well when I used my card as entry/exit.

Logged an online complaint, and crickets...... not even acknowledgement of the enquiry let alone any kind of refund for the double dip.

if you are going to use the Wilson app, try adding promo code AFCSTAFF - gives me $10.50 early bird at Adelaide Central.

I have no complaints about them.
Last year, just at the right time for COVID lockdown, we hired a car and parked it at Princes Wharf, Auckland.
Could not get the ticket machine to work, so asked a local ....... "yeah, bro, do this, this, this and this .....,ahh, it's not working, better ring them."
Ring, ring ... no answer. Same result a few hours later, and repeat. So stuff 'em, leave the car where it is, and ignore the consequences.
3 days later, on a refugee flight out of NZ.
6 months later, got a refund of unused car hire, and nothing from Wilsons.

There was some bad press in NZ during the first Covid lockdown, people been charged for carparks they couldn't use so maybe you benefited from that?

^^^ We got back to Aus on 20 Mar 20, just at the start of closed borders etc, so that could have well have been the case.

Last time I used a Wilson's in Adelaide, it would not let me out. Used card to scan in and it would not let me out.
Pressed the intercom button and spoke to the guy and told him my card won't work and then he opened the boom gate as there was about 5 cars behind me.
I did realize later I used a different card when going in and scanning my other card would not let me out. :p
